The Armstrong Honors Program is dedicated to inspiring students to connect their education to their life experiences.
These connections are forged through hands-on learning, interdisciplinary courses, service learning, and community-based activities.
Learning encourages students at Armstrong to distinguish themselves as leaders in all areas, both on campus, and in the community.
The Honors Program embodies the traditional values of a liberal arts education at its best, fosters a commitment to lifelong learning, and serves as a campus testing ground for innovative approaches to teaching and learning.
So, are you interested in joining Armstrong's Honors Program? Maybe you want a little more information before you decide...
Incoming Freshmen Requirements
Students admitted to the Honors Program in previous years typically earned higher than a 3.5 high school GPA and scored higher than 1200 combined Evidence-Based Reading + Mathematics on the redesigned SAT or 25 on the ACT. Admission is competitive as we have many more strong applicants than available spaces in the Program.
Continuing Students Requirements
We will not consider current student applicants’ high school records; rather, we will review the college record. Current student applicants need to have at least a 3.3 overall GPA at the university level and must either be enrolled in or have completed an Honors course.
Transfer Students Requirements
As with continuing students, we will not consider transfer student applicants’ high school records; rather, we will review the college record. Transfer student applicants need to have at least a 3.3 overall GPA in their college courses.
Students transferring with 60+ credit hours will be required to take only one such Honors in the Core course; students entering with 30-59 hours will need two; students with 15-29 will need three; and students with fewer than 15 will need four (like all other Honors Program students).
